I've been working on a baseline here with the luxury of having an outstanding 4X environment five minutes away. I spent hours out there this week, practicing in crossed, deep ruts, sand, steep descents, off camber descents, ledges and drop offs.
While I've been off road with this casually, I havent really explored the limits. Better feel for approach, departure and break-over angles, the surprising amount of stock suspension travel. And, of course, it's a blast.
It's not my intent to rock crawl with this, but to have the overland capacity to explore The Grand Staircase where I live. This Monty also pulls duty towing a horse trailer, so it would be unwise to pull the ASB.
Recovery is the priority, then suspension.
Thanks, all, for your insight.
And if you're ever in this neck of the woods, I'll be glad to introduce you to Warner valley.
